We had temperatures in the 90s most days last week (hot!), but a cool front pushed through on Friday...we look forward to a weekend in the 80s.
Three excellent reads, all timely, all somewhat bleak: Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism by Anne Applebaum; Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen: A Novel by Sarah Bird; and Cher Ami and Major Whittlesey by Kathleen Rooney.
I've been listening to The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See by Richard Rohr. So far, I've listened to the whole book twice, and I've started it again for the third time. Powerful stuff.

We did lots of Texas Master Naturalist work last week. We collected data for the Pollinator Citizen Science Project. We attended the Texas Master Naturalist State Convention, held on WebEx. And we planted trees at the nearby county park.
1. Mail-in ballots are only allowed in Texas for a few reasons, and masks are not required in the voting booths. I had no other choice; I took a deep breath and got in line and voted in person on the first day of early voting.
2. My Christian meditation class.
3. Pecans from our backyard.
I'm happy you found your way to the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place for us to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there.
Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:
- What was your week like?
- Read any good books? Tell us about them.
- What other bookish things did you do?
- What else is going on in your life?
